Cardinals signed OF Carlos Peguero to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.
Peguero has hit only .194/.263/.384 across 319 plate appearances in his big league career, although he's slugged 13 homers. Slated to turn 29 next month, Peguero has long had an all-or-nothing approach that has led to gaudy home run and strikeout totals in the minors. He's merely a depth addition for the Cards.

Red Sox re-signed OF Carlos Peguero to a minor league contract; assigned him to Triple-A Pawtucket.

Peguero elected free agency last week after being outrighted off Boston's 40-man roster. He drew interest from a team in Japan but has decided to remain in the Red Sox system. The 28-year-old is a .194/.263/.384 career hitter in 103 major league games.

Chris Cotillo of reports that Carlos Peguero is receiving interest from a Japanese club.

Peguero was outrighted to Triple-A Pawtucket a few days ago but has yet to report. He drew interest from teams overseas over the winter, as well, before eventually inking a minor league deal with the Rangers.

Red Sox sent OF Carlos Peguero outright to Triple-A Pawtucket.

Peguero had just one hit in five at-bats before being designated for assignment. He cleared waivers and will serve as outfield depth -- something the Red Sox aren't short on -- in Pawtucket.

Red Sox designated OF Carlos Peguero for assignment.

Peguero was acquired from the Rangers for cash a week ago, but he's getting the boot now to clear a roster spot for new outfielder Alejandro De Aza. Peguero logged just six plate appearances with Boston. The 28-year-old is a .194/.263/.384 career major league hitter.

Red Sox acquired OF Carlos Peguero from the Rangers for cash considerations.

Peguero was designated for assignment by Texas one week ago after batting .186/.310/.414 in 84 plate appearances. The 28-year-old outfielder is a .194/.262/.387 career hitter at the major league level.

Rangers designated OF Carlos Peguero for assignment.

Peguero has the reputation of a 4-A player and didn't do anything to dispel that line of thinking with four homers but a .186/.310/.414 batting line and 36 strikeouts over 70 at-bats with the Rangers. It's possible another team will be intriguing enough with the power to scoop him up.

Carlos Peguero struck out all four times he was up Wednesday against the Royals.

Peguero is 0-for-9 the last two days, dropping his average to .200. With Josh Hamilton on a rehab assignment, Peguero's time as a starter against right-handers for the Rangers is likely running out.
Wed, May 13, 2015 11:06:00 PM

Carlos Peguero went 1-for-4 with a home run and two RBI in Saturday's loss to the Rays.

Peguero, who came into the season with just nine career home runs over 214 at-bats, has hit four in this week alone, as he homered on Tuesday, homered twice on Wednesday and added another two-run shot on Saturday. In 49 at-bats this season, Peguero is hitting .226/.364/.528, though most of that slugging is being buoyed by this hot week.

Carlos Peguero went 3-for-4 with two homers Wednesday as the Rangers crushed the Astros 11-3.

Peguero, who didn't have a homer until Tuesday, is now tied for the Rangers lead at three with Kyle Blanks, who was just called up last week. Peguero has struck out a whopping 20 times in 41 official at-bats, but the power is real and he does have 10 walks to go along with his .238 average. He should be a fixture against right-handers until Josh Hamilton returns.
Wed, May 6, 2015 11:11:00 PM

Carlos Peguero hit his first home run of the season in Tuesday's win over the Astros.

Peguero hit the two-run shot off Astros starter Scott Feldman in the first inning. It was his only hit in three at-bats. Peguero's power has always been his calling card but just hitting for average has been the struggle. This year is no different, as he's now batting .184/.367/.368 through 19 games.
Tue, May 5, 2015 11:12:00 PM

Rangers recalled OF Carlos Peguero from Triple-A Round Rock.

He's replacing Ryan Rua who was placed on the disabled list on Saturday. Manager Jeff Bannister is wasting no time throwing Peguero into the fire, as he's in the lineup and batting second against the Astros on Saturday.
Sat, Apr 11, 2015 04:04:00 PM

Rangers optioned OF Carlos Peguero to Triple-A Round Rock.

Peguero slashed .350/.435/.500 over 46 plate appearances this spring. In regular season play, his numbers have never come close to approaching these, as he's a career .196/.245/.379 hitter. He has enough power (30 home runs in Triple-A last season) that the Rangers will likely give him his share of chances to prove that he's more than a Quadruple-A player.
Wed, Apr 1, 2015 12:07:00 PM

Rangers signed OF Carlos Peguero to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Peguero was released by the Royals last month and owns a lousy .196/.245/.379 over 229 plate appearances in the majors. However, he blasted 30 homers in Triple-A and should be useful outfield depth to have around. He turns 28 next month.
Tue, Jan 13, 2015 03:47:00 PM

Peter Gammons of reports that "lots of teams" are in on Carlos Peguero.

Peguero, who will turn 28 next month, was released by the Royals last month and is a career .196/.245/.379 over 229 big league plate appearances. However, he's consistently hit for power in the minors, blasting 30 homers in 2014 at Triple-A. He'd likely only require a minor league deal, though he's also reportedly received interest from Japanese clubs.
